More Description

"In 1992, Jeff and Kristi Leeland's infant son, Michael, needed a bone marrow transplant. It cost $200,000 they didn't have. That's when Dameon, the most picked-on kid in the junior high where Jeff taught, emptied his bank account and handed Jeff twelve $5 bills to help save Michael's life. Other students rallied behind Dameon's $60 donation of hope--and a community rallied behind them. In less than four weeks, they raised over $227,000 for Michael's life-saving transplant.
"
Sometimes it's the "small "who are mighty and the "young" who are wise....
Kids will do heroic things when they have heroic things to do. Out of the Leelands' experience came Sparrow Clubs USA, an organization of kids helping kids in medical need. Each child helped by Sparrow Clubs faces a battle for life, and yet each of these sparrows lives with a vibrant courage.
Taking you into the communities that became sanctuaries of love for families in need, "A Thousand Small Sparrows "will revive your hope in the Father heart of a God who cares. This is a book about the power of compassion that can change the world-one sparrow at a time.
"One hundred percent of the author's proceeds from this book will benefit Sparrow Clubs USA
